Inhaltsangabe: A young girl faces painful truths about her grandfather, solves a family mystery and brings them all closer, and triumphs in the face of male skeptics by displaying her Little League pitching prowess. Jr Lib Guild.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-6-Timothea, 11, always wanted a relationship with her grandfather. Suddenly, after years of no contact with him, her parents decide a trip to his home in Maine is warranted. Timmi is forced to go along, even though it means missing an important baseball game. No reason is given for the trip, and Timmi is at first annoyed by Grampy's sense of humor, rustic life style, accent, and boring tall tales. Gradually, after she and her sister spend time with him while their parents attend a high-school reunion, she becomes fond of the man. When she discovers that her grandfather's drinking problem is what caused the family estrangement, she understands the reasons for her parents' silence. All is resolved so that Grampy can die in peace a few months later. The hints at what is really going on are broad, and while readers know that there has to be some reason behind the story, the narrator's intrusive asides about baseball, her whining and complaining, and her mocking of Grampy's accent do little to compel them to find out what it is. That the revelation suddenly "poured into my mind, fuzzy like scenes from a very old movie" only points to the weaknesses in both plotting and phrasing.
